I’m inspired by people who’ve prospered through adversity and achieved their goals despite hardship – whether my family, friends, or celebrities like Shania Twain!

There are multiple answers to this question, but I can simply state every single person I meet. Everyone has faced their own unique set of challenges and had their own mountains to climb, which to them felt like their own Mt. Everest. Hearing from other’s stories and learning from people is one the most inspiring things for me.
The people. This is not limited to the students or the law professors, both groups in which you can find people with uplifting or deeply insightful experiences and perspectives, along a spectrum of variance to allow for exposure to many different vantage points. It also extends to the support staff of the school, the undergraduate students, etc. The people make this institution what it is, and I include the individuals we see and the ones behind the scenes allowing everything to operate.
I hope to engage with as many people as possible and learn from their perspectives and experiences, while also helping them see why LexisNexis can be useful in helping make their own lives and expierence in their legal studies and professional career easier.

Honest, Loyal, Ambitious
I'm inspired by what I haven't yet learned or experienced. The sensation of learning something new that I enjoy, or being in a position I've never been in before drives me to push myself to my best ability.
The people around me. From peers to professors, everyone has a unique perspective and outlook. Not only that, but everyone takes the time to share their knowledge and opinions with one another. Ideas are exchanged freely and I feel a real comradery with all the people I've met.
I have 2 goals I hope to accomplish as an associate. First, I want to share as many of the LexisNexis features with as many students as I can. Second, I wish to be present to whoever needs any assistance with the platform. Essentially do everything I can to ensure that Queens' Law Students are well-versed in the tool that will help them throughout their entire career.
I love the outdoors and sometimes I whittle small animals out of wood.

Energetic, hard-working, sweet-toothed.
The trees - their resilience, their strength, their patience.
The people - despite this profession being stereotyped as competitive and adversarial, the students, staff and faculty at law school have been so welcoming and supportive to me.
Law school can be hard. I can’t write your papers for you - but showing you tips and tricks to take advantage of all that this invaluable legal research platform has to offer will certainly help make the paper-writing process less painful and time-consuming!
